With the holidays over, many of us dream of escaping the dreary, winter weather ahead by slipping away to the tropics. Those lucky few who actually are jet setting off to enjoy hot, sunny days while sipping mai tais on white sand beaches really do deserve some of our pity. They often have a difficult time finding “hot” summer clothing in the dead of winter. Come to think of it, the rest of us have that same problem each spring. But not anymore; for beyond its assortment of lacy undies and crystal-studded bras, Victoria’s Secret offers affordable, sexy resort wear that will appeal to women of all ages, budgets and tastes. Here are some favorites:
Every woman needs a super comfortable outfit for flying. Instead of sweatpants or tracksuits, stay fashionable by pairing this oversized Vintage-Washed Fleece Cowlneck Tunic and Yoga Leggings. Layering the tunic with a tank will help you stay warm when leaving your home and will be easy to peel off once you arrive in paradise. This is also a very forgiving ensemble for the flight home after you’ve indulged in all those caipirinhas.
For a comfortable and flirtatious beach cover up, try the Sequined Beach Dress in any of the available rich hues. With a built in bra for easy conversion to a daytime dress, this machine washable halter is sure to make you sparkle.
If you’re looking for a dressy outfit for dinner, look no further than the Knot Dress. Available in the always-classic black, this ultra flattering frock has the detail you want without the fuss.
The perfect footwear is essential on every beach vacation. But who likes to pack tons of shoes? Espadrilles are easy to convert from beach time to dressy nights out. These Colin Stuart T-Strap Wedges are right for all occasions.
An embellished halter for a night out on the town is a must for your tropical vacation. This Stone-Encrusted Racerback Bra Top will give you the halter style you like without needing that uncomfortable strapless bra.
If you need a break from the beach and you’re looking for some retail therapy, you’ll also need a fabulous dress to go shopping in. Try the flattering, tropical Halter Jersey Maxi Dress. It’s super soft on your skin and will soon become a “must-pack” item on all your fun-in-the-sun vacations.
Lastly, every girl needs a handy beach tote for sunscreen, towels and the latest magazine reads. The Straw Tote matches everything and is the perfect size for all your beach day essentials.
Now all you have to do is buy that sunscreen, pack your bags and enjoy a healthy dose of Vitamin D!
